The best thing about Istanbul is Hannah Zebedee

Hannah is the kind of person who is very observant of her surroundings and when she sees a situation that she could offer a helping hand, she could never ignore it. It seems like helping people is so ingrained in her system that it has become an almost “knee-jerk” response. I observe it everyday. While I am in awe of her, Hannah is completely unaware of how special her random act of kindness is.

Hannah is very aware of her privilege as a “white person” living in a “first world” country. As much as it is a new concept to me, I find it so admirable that she cares so much about the world and the underprivileged.

From my understanding, Hannah feels she could only justify her existence as a “previleged first world” citizen by making the world a less segregated place in terms of race& socio-economic conditions.

Here are two examples of the many worthy causes Hannah has mentioned that I would never know about.

Project Peanut Butter

Founded by Dr. Manary, the team behind “Project Peanut Butter” has created a food that became known as Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF). RUTF is an energy-dense, peanut butter like paste. This nutrition-dense but easily digestible food is designed specifically for the treatment d severely malnourished children.

UNICEF & the role of a social anthropologist 

From what I understand, the role of a social anthropologist is to investigate and to find out how different people organise their social relationships and societies differently.

    Hey there RubyPeng,

    How do you know my daughter Hannah Zebedee. We, our family, have holidayed in Olu Deniz for over 20 years, could that be the connection?
